The Property

A charming detached dormer bungalow situated on the outskirts of the village of Ballyferriter, County Kerry. Exuding a homely feel from the moment you walk through the door, this traditional Ballyferriter cottage features six comfy bedrooms with flexible sleeping arrangements suitable for any group looking to discover this special region of the Emerald Isle. Cook up a storm in the bright and airy kitchen/diner, or take your meal outside this cottage near Ballyferriter for an afternoon of alfresco dining and admire the far-reaching views, which trail across the vibrant surrounding greenery all the way to the ocean. Situated on the popular Wild Atlantic Way, it’s just a short stroll from your Kerry cottage to the village of Ballyferriter, where a friendly welcome, assured at the local pubs in this Gaeltacht area, awaits you. There are numerous stunning sights to discover on the Dingle Peninsula, with the spectacular Slea Head a particular highlight, offering elevated views sweeping across the sea to the Blasket Islands. Take the Connor Pass towards Castlegregory for a breathtaking outlook on this wildly beautiful landscape. Mount Brandon, Ireland’s second tallest peak, is waiting to be conquered, before retiring to the colourful town of Dingle for rows of interesting shops, traditional bars alive with music, and quality seafood restaurants. The coastline is dotted with unspoilt golden beaches and hidden coves that offer the perfect, idyllic setting for a breezy day beside the sea, or why not take a day trip to Killarney and the Ring of Kerry for yet more scenic vistas and culture to absorb?
